Smartphone snaps: Abdul-Rahman Abdullah’s life on the cattle farm


“Everyone carries their own mythologies, associations—something beyond this straight objective experience of the world.” — Abdul-Rahman Abdullah

Showing serene images of family life on a cattle farm south of Perth, and already living in semi-isolation, Abdul-Rahman Abdullah captures, on his smartphone, poignant and fun insights into parenting and creating.

In our July/August magazine we profiled ten artists, and asked each artist to document their life with their smartphone. Abdullah’s snaps are filled with family, home and his studio, perfectly complementing our profile, where he discusses life on the cattle farm and the inspiration behind some of his most emotional works.
